Summertime Swing 2005
a Massive Success!
That's right folks we've finally managed to tally up the totals and get a bunch of pics on the site so here's the news!
As many of you know, last year's event surpassed all our expectations and whereas then we had sold 180 tickets in advance and were pleasantly surprised when over 450 people showed up, this year we had sold 400 tickets in advance and over 700 people showed up! We've definitely made this an annual event now and the dates for Summertime Swing 2006 will be on the gig guide soon so check back.
A big thank you to all our guest performers including DJ extraordinary, Terry Elliot and his wife Marion, Chantz Powell, Bryony, The Jiving Lindy Hoppers and The Teenyboppers. Thanks also to all those that brought their military vehicles and classic cars along for show, this really added to the great atmosphere. We'd also like to give a very special big thanks to all the Saint Hill Manor and Church of Scientology Staff that helped organize and run the event, we couldn't have done it without them!
Anyone who missed this event and is kicking themselves as a result or for anyone who loved it so much that they'd love to come back to this beautiful venue then listen up! The Jive Aces are playing two concerts at Saint Hill Manor in October. Both of them are open to the public and free to Jive Aces fan club members. The first is on Friday the 21st October. This is for the annual International Association of Scientologists Anniversary with news of the Church's various community, humanitarian and charitable activities around the world such as disaster relief in the recent hurricane Katrina. The event starts at 7:00pm and the band will be playing afterwards with plenty of space for dancing and free food and refreshments. The second is two days later on Sunday, 23rd October. This is the annual Saint Hill Celebrity Charity concert. This is a charity fundraiser for several charities and other confirmed artists so far include Broadway sensation James Barbour, New York vocal powerhouse Stacy Francis, Emmy and Grammy award winning Hollywood film composer Mark Isham and the MC is Hollywood actress Anne Archer. We have a few free guest passes available for this.
